Twenty councils, among them Green-led Brighton and Hove, asked the government for powers to put a levy on big supermarkets in their area. The money is to be used to support local communities damaged by the business practices of these giants... small businesses and cooperatives could again flower and grow in communities around the country.
Apparently, The Gaza Strip isn't just a lap dancing club in Golders Green, nor is it a new waxing technique adopted by Israeli women. Believe it or not, it is in fact a place where stuff has been kicking off for a long time...
Venetian summer dishes are as plentiful as they are delightful; but sgroppino after dinner is something that I long for all through winter. Sgroppino is sorbet - traditionally lemon - mixed with a dash of vodka and a stream of bubbly prosecco.
How easy is it to put on a couple of boiled eggs before going to work? An egg contains approximately 80 calories and contains almost every nutrient in one bite. The white is made mostly of protein and the yolk holds 13 essential nutrients to keep us healthy.
This is what I've noticed about advertising (it's not a recent development, but I've been having such a dedicated, nightly liaison with Netflix that I've avoided television adverts for quite some time); only women like yoghurt. Particularly, women like eating yoghurt alone, in profile with their eyes shut.
This is a easy recipe and very Summery. Make sure you use fresh scallops for this dish as the ones in the tubs are not good enough for such simplicity... Have a great week!
Chorizo crisps are something I discovered recently and I think they're probably mildly addictive. Easy to make, they are a fantastic addition to this main course summer salad. It's something you can throw together very quickly, with the delicate smoked chicken given a spicy kick by the crunchy chorizo and unctuous harissa mayonnaise.
Carbohydrates tend to increase our hunger due to the insulin-stimulating effect of blood sugar. Also our ability to binge on them is much higher than on fatty foods. How much pure butter could you eat compared with an unlimited supply of cakes, ice cream, chips, chocolates etc? Is this where we are going wrong?
Foodies like to eat and drink well and follow this with a good night's sleep without having to drive home. Here is a selection of places selected by the Good Hotel Guide where you can do just that.
It's a testament to my optimistic nature, the triumph of imagination over reality, but somehow I forget that baking with a two year old is a really stupid idea.
We're back from our summer hols. We went to Suffolk. Southwold to be precise. We always holiday in Suffolk; it's my attempt at creating childhood memories the boys can bore their own kids with. I regularly irritate them with rose tinted tales of crabbing in Cornwall. It's only right I allow them the same pleasurable adult pastime.
North African cuisine is a fragrant mix of exotic flavours, colourful spices and tantalising tastes. From slow-cooked tagines to fluffy couscous, here are 10 must-eat North African dishes.
At The Shed the humous arrives with a novel kind of crisp bread and some chive flowers. It really is a wonderful thing. It's the sort of dish that makes me loathe Michelin. Innovative, delicious beautiful and totally off their fussy Franco-gastrophilanthropic radar.
I love London, almost as much as I love food - luckily for me, the two go hand in hand. In fact, the best thing about living in London is the sheer unparalleled variety when it comes to dining out. Rarely do I ever turn down the offer to try a new restaurant or pop-up.
Not surprising that eggs have been called nature's multivitamin. I think we can safely say, eggs are our friends! Not only that, but eggs are the ultimate fastfood and there really is nothing else as nutritious that can be cooked as quickly.
Deliciously more-ish, crisp on the outside and chewy soft in the middle. Just how I like them. They're a variation on the theme of amaretti, but with a slightly richer, denser flavour that comes from the finely ground walnut flour.
